Siblings of MC Lyte and a pair of the most notorious gay-bashers in hip-hop, Audio Two -- Gizmo Dee and Milk -- released a trio of albums during the late '80s and early '90s, each of which had good moments drizzled throughout patches of filler. The Brooklyn brothers were signed to First Priority by the label's president, their father. "Top Billin'," "What More Can I Say," and "Hickeys Around My Neck" won the duo some fans, but it wasn't enough to make the album worthy of classic status.

The First Dead Indian closed out their run in 1992.
